It happens alot of times that while taking a group shot, there is atleast one person who is looking somewhere else. So we ask to pose for another shot. However now someone else from the group is not in perfect smile or moving his hands here or there.
Getting a perfect group shot is too simple using PSE.
1. Open the two group shots which are not so perfect and go to File>New> Photomerge Group Shot or Guided Edit > Photomerge> Group Shot
For example :
The above screen appears. Select the base image where most of the people appear perfect and drag it to the empty space on the right where as the source image at left.
If you see the above pictures you would notice that in right image(our base image) , the person on the left has his arm raised. While in the left image, the person at the back has his arms raised.
So we want to have one picture out of these two were none of the guys have their arms raised.
2. Select the pencil tool from right panel and create a selection like the one show below (V-Shaped), where I selected the person on left who appears fine.
As soon as you leave the mouse drag, you would see the results as shown :
But if you see closely, there is a problem in this result which is highlighted as shown below :
|Problem highlighted in pink box|
So the person highlighted in pink box is having another arm in the result image on right.
It is just one more step. Just select the eraser tool from right panel and rub over the arm area in the source i.e. left image and the extra arm disappears.
And here is my resultant image :)
